It’s been a couple of days since Panic! at the Disco released their first new song in two years, “Hallelujah” and now footage of the band performing the song live has surfaced online.
Before the song’s release earlier this week, the Las Vegas band announced they would be performing at the 7th Annual Shorty Awards, which took place last night, and that’s where “Hallelujah” made its official debut.
Watch the video below which features an introduction from Wyclef Jean who apparently had to improvise his entire intro because the teleprompter wasn’t working.
Also, try not to get too upset when you don’t hear anyone singing along with Panic!. It’s kind of weird seeing/hearing live footage of the band performing and not hearing some random person screaming at the top of their lungs the lyrics off-key in the background.
Anyway, check out the two song performance.
Recently, frontman Brendon Urie sat down for an interview with Alt 98.7 where he revealed that the band’s upcoming fifth studio album is “85% completed” and will have a different sound.
“It’s this mix between Sinatra and Queen, if that makes any sense…Every time we do a new album, for me, it’s always evolving and changing—in the best way. There’s going to be a new energy live.”
And we’re looking forward to that.
